    I've hit a gold mine! I work at the technology center at which the Switch preview tour was held. My boss had a technician unlock the Switch display case to correct hardware issues. Afterwards, the keys were returned to my boss. With a watchful eye and a bit of snooping around, I finally obtained the keys! I was able to convince my boss to let me 'work late,' and unlocked the display case. I hastily unplugged the peripherals, but no damage was done. I can't believe how easy it was to take, but I'm attempting to avoid legal trouble. I've now reconnected the proper peripherals and currently the console's display and cpu is functioning properly. However, I can only play certain games for set intervals. How can I modify the console to function normally (e.g. a normal Switch)? If anyone could help, I'd be grateful, as a physical copy of the demo was written to a dummy disk which doesn't work when inserted into the Switch's optical drive. I am confident it would work if I was able to convert this to a normal Switch. Thanks for the support!
    Note: There's no legal precedent, as it was broken, but my boss told me to ask him before doing this stuff. He doesn't know that it's functioning properly, fortunately.

    It uses cartridges, but I used an external optical drive.

    So you make a thread about stealing a display unit and claim you want no legal issues.. are you stupid? You really expect us to believe that your boss lets you keep it? I hope you lose your job.

    My boss is perfectly fine with this. He said he 'knew it wouldn't work' and wished 'I would stop trying, it was a futile effort.'
    Also: the external odd does not work, but I knew it was a long shot.

    Yeah, pictures or it's just a dumb thread with no meaning to it other than you stole something and want to flaunt it.

    I'm confused. Did you take the display unit, or somehow make a copy of the software it was running? Your post is one big run on sentence and it's hard to follow.

    I also call troll, but in case this is a serious thread.

    Burn it. Burn any cameras that saw you take it. Copy the keys and melt the originals.
    And break a few doors or windows.
    And you'll probably still go to prison.

    Disc = round, circulator storage devices

    Disk = floppy or cartridge based storage like SSD.
